“Absolutely disgusted”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

After walking up the hill looking for somewhere nice and quiet for a drink, we came across what looked like a lovely restaurant. It was 11.30am, we sat down and ordered drinks. The owner of the restaurant was extremely rude and forcefully told us that she would not serve us just drinks and she served only food. There were 3 other tables occupied, had the restaurant been in the slightest bit busy, we would have maybe been a little more sympathetic. Quite frankly we were appalled at how rude and obnoxious a business owner could be, particularly in this economic climate.

Do not give this woman the business, there are plenty of other lovely and friendly restaurants a little further up.

“Mama's House = Your mom's cooking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This was one of the best restaurants for Greek food on Santorini! The food was very authentic, the atmosphere of the restaurant was fun and cozy! Thomas, the owner and Katula (who's been on the staff for 18 years!) treated you like you were in their own home! The spinach pie was my favorite! The food tasted just like mom made ...it was delicious. We ate here twice during our 3 day stay in Santorini! The prices were also very reasonable. I highly recommend you try this restaurant. Please tell Thomas and Katula that Angie from New Jersey ( & 5 euros for the bathroom joke) highly recommended this restaurant!!!!

“I still dream about the food here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We ate at Mama's twice during our 3-day stay in Santorini - that's how good it was! The prices were very reasonable, the outside patio dining area was wonderful, and the food was AMAZING! I still dream about the fried sesame-seed crusted feta cheese appetizer - it was out-of-this-world good. You must try it. Tzatziki was also very good. The entrees were good as well but nothing compared to that fried feta!
